At the 2014 Value Voters Summit, Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann (R) claimed that there is no such thing as "moderate" Islam, and that President Barack Obama failed the American people by deciding not to declare war on it, the Raw Story website reports today (September 26, 2014).
Speaking of her appointment to the elite House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, she claimed that she "had a front-row seat to a world set on fire," she said, "from Islamic jihad. And what we've seen is one disaster after another for the Obama-Clinton policy team."
"Unbelievably, we have the first anti-Israel president in American history," Bachmann said, continuing to address the absent Obama. "That's your legacy."
She claimed that Muslims are engaged in "spiritual warfare, and that what we must do is defeat Islamic jihad. Sadly, our president has the wrong prescription. He even fails to acknowledge their motivations for bringing out jihad." The audience applauded wildly when she said, "Yes, Mr. President, it is about Islam!"
